Texas man in critical condition after motorcycle accident

Whether you are heading across town for a night out or hitting the open roads of Texas for a long trip, a motorcycle is a great way to ride. However, even the best precautions cannot protect riders from a negligent or inattentive driver. Modern drivers have more to distract them than ever before, from in-car GPS and DVD players to smartphones. Whether they are occupied with an electronic device, speeding or simply not paying attention, motorists often overlook the presence of motorcycle riders on the road.

In Plano, a rider is in serious condition after a collision with a pickup truck in the northern town of Pottsboro. The driver of the truck was heading south on Highway 289 when she attempted to make a left turn off the highway, subsequently colliding with the motorcyclist who was heading north.

The truck driver reported to police that she did not see the motorcycle at any point before the collision. The motorcyclist, who is from Denison, was airlifted by helicopter to Plano to receive medical attention. The truck driver was not injured.

Motorcycle unawareness results in accidents on roads throughout the United States each day. This particular accident illustrates a left-turn hazard that is commonly faced by riders. Although the initial police report did not suggest a specific cause for the accident, it is possible the pickup truck driver was not giving her full attention to the road.

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury that resulted in heavy medical expenses or permanent disability, there are options available that may help you find a resolution for your situation. Financial compensation can help you pay your bills and pave your road to recovery.
